The fit is perfect. Didn't expect the waist to stretch as much as it did however I am a beginner with this raw denim hobby. The Zimbabwe and memphis cotton feels great.

This is one of the best fitting pairs of jeans I ever bought! Bought them in one wash variation in my true size 30, withing half an hour of wear they already felt comfortable enough. This is a true slim tapered fit meaning they are not skinny and guys like me with some muscle in thighs can feel comfortable enough and the taper all the way to narrow (but not too narrow) leg opening is just perfect for any pair of shoes/trainers. The denim is very nice color. Keep in mind that this denim (at least one washed one) does not produce crazy fades, after half a year I hardly got any but for me it's not a problem, I use this pair as my "elegant" outfit leaving the fading craze to my other pairs. Also the rise (both back and front) is just perfect for me, kinda between middle and high.

Ordering from Republic of Korea it only took three days for me to own my Monster selvedge. The jean fits perfect to me and of course it is made of a nice fabric.

good value for money jeans a bit rigid initially but softens after wearing for a month - size up one size to fit your waist as this is a one washed sanforized jeans

Will the colour is amazing. Deep Indigo and olive green. Perfect. But it is very hard and the breaking in process was very very painful. Infact it was more painful than my samurai s701xx 18oz. But the fit is to die for if you are willing to endure pain in the beginning. Highly recomended. (This is a truly low waist jeans)

Review by Donald Flamenco
Like what others have mentioned, these are very soft and hairy. For the weight, these jeans feel warmer than others primarily due to the hairiness of the fabric plus the tight weave.

My one and only problem with these are the back rise is ridiculously high compared to the front rise. It's almost as if they decided to combine low rise and high rise jeans - the front with low and the back with high.

That being said, I can't help but look down on these when I'm wearing them. The fabric is just too awesome to the touch and also looks fantastic.

I did get them tapered in a little bit and hemmed -- 5'4, 125 - 127 lbs and I do a lot of squats.

Buy them from Denimio. Peter was great in answering all my questions.

I was blown away by the quality of the jb0501. This is my second pair after samurai s701xx which costs double but still jb0501 is equal in quality. I wonder why someone will pay more for more. Momotaro when Japan Blue is of such superior quality. Highly recommend.

1. How do you like the cut/shape of this product?
The cut looks good to me

2. How do you like the weight (oz) of this product?
At 12oz, it comes in on the lower side of average weight, so feels fairly light to wear.

3. How is the texture & feeling of the garment?
As it's just been soaked, can't really comment much, as it feels slightly stiff as you would expect. But it is clear that it is a good quality denim product

4. How is the sizing ( -2, -1, true size, +1) ? If you don't mind, Please also share your height/weight along with the size you selected.

I am 5'10 at 62kg with a 32.5 size waist and I bought a size 30 (non wash), which fits perfectly. As it says in the description, Big John has used a non-shrink denim, so even after a soak (lukewarm water), the shrink was very minimal

Just got this pair in the mail today and I'm in love with them! They are more soft and comfy than other raw denim jeans. I only wish it had a selvedge outseam. I ordered a size 0 (5' 2'', 100 lbs) and they fit perfectly. The leather patch is gorgeous and the leaf detailing is unique and adds character to the jeans. The signature leaf is one of my favorite things about PBJs.

Great service from Denimio, they go the extra mile for you.
The Japan Blue jeans - excellent quality for the price, strong denim that maintains form and doesn’t expand much. So if you buy one washed from JB the product you receive is likely to not change a lot.
Measurements are right on, quite reliable.
Thanks guys!

Didn't realize how big they were below the knee because i just went off the leg opening measurement. Shame on me, knee sizing on all the jeans would be EXTREMELY helpful. Other than that the jeans are great.

Review by Alejandro G.
Japan Blue is the best quality to cost ratio out there and Denimo makes it hard to say no. Measurements were accurate and I would suggest taking their recommendation when it comes to sizing. 0412 cut is the most popular for a reason. I received these state side 5 days after ordering, which is better than some local retailers do. Will buy again from them.

Review by Andrey G.
прекрасная модель, насыщенный темный цвет, фактурный с выраженным слаби. Достаточно плотный и мягкий деним, хотя и ощущается легче заявленной плотности. Замеры лучше запрашивать в поддержке, поскольку табличные не соответствуют.
Доставка очень быстрая и качественная (неделя). Спасибо Питеру за помощь, Денимио - за отличный сервис.

I wear a 30W in Levi's 508s. I sized up to a 32W Japan Blue, one soak. At first I couldn't button them. I sat in them for an hour and then took a walk and they fit excellent. Size up.
